by Jason Odell Williams
After the murder of George Floyd captures national headlines in the middle of a pandemic, a white Republican Senator from North Carolina speaks to his constituents in a virtual Town Hall to call for change. Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award winning actor Rob Nagle reprises his multiple award-winning role as “Sen. Charles Whitmore” from the hit Off-Broadway play Church & State in a reimagined setting where the crisis at hand isn’t school shootings, but the relentless killing of unarmed black men by police.
